Young's Literal Translation


Chapter 23

1 A Psalm of David. Jehovah [is] my shepherd, I do not lack,


2 In pastures of tender grass He causeth me to lie down, By quiet waters He doth lead me.


3 My soul He refresheth, He leadeth me in paths of righteousness, For His name`s sake,


4 Also -- when I walk in a valley of death-shade, I fear no evil, for Thou [art] with me,


Thy rod and Thy staff -- they comfort me.


5 Thou arrangest before me a table, Over-against my adversaries,


Thou hast anointed with oil my head, My cup is full!


6 Only -- goodness and kindness pursue me, All the days of my life,


And my dwelling [is] in the house of Jehovah, For a length of days!
